Bangladesh Skills Vision 2016

31 per cent of the population in Bangladesh lives below the international poverty line (US$1.25 per day). This means every third person is struggling every day to survive. Poverty causes flow-on effects as well, on global problems such as conflict, crime and environmental degradation. Training and skill development offers a way to address the needs of Bangladesh’s huge and expanding population by providing skills to enhance employability and reduce poverty by ensuring safe and decent work for all.
